Awesome. I don’t have TV or cable, but I imagine you’ll link it after the fact?

I saw Larry’s appearance on Mike Huckabee last night and it was awesome. I want to post parts of it on my FB. Has anyone located it on You Tube or any other place?

Wow! Awesome. Like Graham, I don’t have TV, but I’ll watch the heck out of it on youtube later!

Because no other media station wants someone who can make cogent and compelling arguments against gun control on their programs who they haven’t properly vilified first?

Larry,

While it probably wouldn’t do great things for your blood pressure, it would be interesting to see you go on the Piers Morgan show, though it probably would end up really one-sided. Facts can be a scary thing…:-)

Because the M$NBC, @BC, and C-N studios were not built strong enough to handle his awesomnes? Because they are terrified of his being a wise Latino father? Because Piers Morgan’s and Toure’s hairpieces were found in a corner, cowering in fear when the very idea was broached?

I know Huckabee’s stance on pardons. I have no faith that he will show any better decision making with regards to guns.

Suggest you have numbers ready for how many rounds police routinely expend before a subject is stopped, especially when you disregard subjects who surrender or retreat after the first shot.

I suspect the number of shots required will be in the 3-6 range, but i don’t have current data to back that up. If the data could be found, it would be relevant to 10 round magazines when you might need to face a second or third attacker.

I think I like your followers! Like me, they don’t have television or cable. So, I hope the video will be made available online after the show is over.

Congratulations for the exposure.

Larry, please make certain you have an “emotional” argument prepared as well as facts and rationality. That is, unfortunately, the winning appeal in this sad day and age.

do NOT do this. stick to the facts and logic that reasonable people can understand. you aren’t going to win an argument with idiots by descending to their level; they have more experience there and will beat you every time.

and do please link. i dislike both Huckabee and cable news in general, but i’d be willing to tolerate both to hear you trash some talking heads on live tv. go about it just like in your ‘fisking the morons’ posts and you’ll do great.

Sorry, that is the arena in which we are getting our butts whipped. Facts mostly play to the choir, and they are useful for crushing any fact based arguments or misapplied statistics that the Left may use. But the mushy moronic middle doesn’t want to think and mostly responds to emotional appeal. Just think of how far the Fascist Left has gotten with the non sequitur “Kids were killed in a (no self-defense allowed) school in CT so we must ban self-loading rifles and normal sized magazines.” I don’t see how one follows the other, but it works with the… Read more »

Sjonnar, check out the recent story of the Georgia mother of two who hid with her two children in their homes crawl space, only to see the crawl space door opened by the home invader; she emptied her .38 revolver into the perp, hitting with 5 of 6 shots only to have him drive off. If he had a partner or two … Now imagine Larry telling that story from the POV of the young mother, crouching in that crawl space, her 9-year-old twins (boy, girl, one each) hiding behind her, with her husband on her cell phone.

Regarding RES’ link: I would give at least even odds that the Hermans will be sued for their actions in the home invasion (or at least burglary) allegedly committed by Paul Slater. After all husband Donnie Herman is recorded on 911 as saying “… shoot him again!” and Mr Slater is apparently recorded as (nicely, no doubt) asking Melinda Herman to stop shooting, which she did not do until she had emptied her weapon. Clearly Mr Slater has had a difficult life, what with the prior convictions and jail time, and is not to blame for the circumstances that forced… Read more »

@ RES:

see Mike_C’s post. now imagine the leftist talking head calling for that very lawsuit on national tv, using the very argument that Mike subverted. and then imagine all the various leftist fuckwads out there who will agree with that argument and hold Slater up as the victim of gun violence.

like i told Harry, we cannot fight them on their own turf. they have more experience there.

If we’re going to offer advice, we may as well do so in detail…

Someone give me an emotional prompt arguing for gun control, and I’ll write a sample emotional counterargument. If enough people do that, Larry Correia may be able to skim through the message log and pick something he can adapt for himself.

All I can think of was using “freedom” and “liberty” as much as possible. My dad’s coaching did not work too well with me, which is why I became a computer geek.
Heck, I am not even certain that freedom and liberty will poll well any more. I know “responsibility” won’t…

@Ronald:

standard leftist emotional gun control argument: LOOK AT ALL THE DEAD CHILDREN WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING NOW WON’T ANYONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN? EVIL MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX (firearms manufacturers = military-industrial complex in leftist land) IS FUNNELING GUNS INTO CLASSROOMS BECAUSE THEY WANT DEAD CHILDREN AND MONEY AND DEAD CHILDREN = MONEY AND THEY HATE PUPPIES.

@Sjonnar: How about this as a reply: MY child is still alive. by the time he was two years old, he was asking me to check under his bed for monsters, which i was glad to do. And since I resolved never to lie to my child, even implicitly, I have always been prepared to handle any monsters i might find. Because if I were unarmed, and a monster were really there? I couldn’t do a single thing to save my child. My kid has faith in my ability to solve problems, and I try to live up to that… Read more »

@ Ronald:

only because you were willing to use VIOLENCE, which all reasonable people know is the ultimate evil, and to do so with a GUN, of all things, which only compounds your evil. and what if your kid got a hold of the gun? the evil violent spirits therein would possess your boy and make him go murder all his classmates at school. and a puppy.

try again.

also, there aren’t any such thing as monsters. (except for people who use/own firearms) they’re all just misunderstood folks who didn’t have as much stuff as you did growing up. because you took it from them.

@Sjonnar:

Emotional arguments are not necessarily the same thing as fallacious arguments. an argument which is logical, but also appeals to an emotional interest, might be helpful. An argument which is both emotional and counterfactual is pointless.

So yes, there are some emotional people making bizarre arguments that can’t be reasoned with. But a good, logical argument, reinforced with an emotional anecdote, will reach a broader argument that a good logical argument by itself.

I agree with Sjonnar. Do not use emotional arguments. Aside from their flaws it will alwayse hurt your argument. I’ve gotten into many debates with left wing types and for the few of them who actually remember their Philosophy Logic classes they are alwayse trying to point out a slip up in my arguments. Be it an emotional plea or other Logical Fallacy. Once they think they have seen a Fallacy they practically foam at the mouth like a pit bull who has seen a jugular. They pounce on it and enter a debate equivalent of a blood frenzy. It’s… Read more »

Good luck, stay cool. One of the things I think gun supporters could do better is to work with the media instead of directly antagonizing it. You can’t tell someone they’re biased, prejudiced and irrational and then ask them to carry your message. They’ve already tuned out whatever else you may say. The key is education, explanation and patience. I’ve “won” arguments with hopolophobes from time to time, but to win one I had to buy him a rifle and get him invested into it before he changed his tune. Still, it is a win!

At least we “took the bullet” for the rest of the nation. Everybody now knows what Cuomo is all about. As crappy as he was before he was focused on budget/tax items which on a state level he was doing an alright job. After getting whacked with a 12.5% property tax increase (about $1,000 increase on a small house in a blue collar neighborhood) his cap on annual property tax increases in any year was welcomed by everyone. He was palatable at least… That was what he needed for national office. This changes everything. Frankly I think he overestimated anti… Read more »

Hey, Ken – did you read Fox News today? Apparently, they were in such a hurry to pass the new law that they forgot to exempt the police and law enforcement. All of their high-capacity magazines are now illegal!!! Turn them in or get rid of them, boys in blue!!!

Kenneth Harkin

Cuomo is trying to avert the problem from their oversight by saying the old law exempted LEOs so the new one that replaces it does by default… The bottom line is they are just going to refuse to enforce it selectively. Anybody surprised?

Huckabee’s show also reruns at 3:00 AM in the Red Eye slot Monday morning.

BTW, did you see Thursday morning’s NY Times article “Even Defining ‘Assault Rifles’ Is Complicated” by Erica Goode? Using the authority of the NYT against the gun controllers ought give them conniptions.

FWIW I’m opposed to emotional arguments as well, and personally am reluctant to go that route even if that’s what the other side is doing. That said, let’s go with the argument that if there’s ANYTHING we can do to save even a single child’s life, we should do it. I mean, who can put a price on a human life, right? So here’s a modest proposal that no reasonable person can argue with. Anyone who disagrees is a bad, immoral, socially irresponsible person. Let’s look at the government’s own data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We will… Read more »
